About me

Hello! My name is Cara and I live in Chicago, Illinois. After obtaining my Master's degree from Northwestern University, I've worked as a speech-language pathologist in multiple settings, specifically in public and private schools, pediatric home health, teletherapy, as well as inpatient rehab with adults. I entered the field of speech pathology because I truly enjoy helping and working with others. The essence of human life is communication and everyone deserves to have a voice. What a rewarding career it is to be able to teach, encourage, guide, and assist in improving one's communication skills.
